I finished my mini quilt top.

I am so glad I tried this, with this only being my third quilt, I didn't think I could do a mini quilt at all. I have barely figured out how to make them full size. Anyway, I scaled down some 9" and 12" blocks to make them 3" and the finished top is approx 16 x 20.

I have a couple of goofs in there that are glaringly obvious to me, but the people I have shown have had to search for them, so that makes me feel better and I am pretty proud of this little quilt.

Now I just have to figure out how I want to quilt it and then bind it and it is good to go.

I'm looking to send my Step-Sister's Choice quilt to a new home.  If you're interested in swapping for fabric/scrapbooking supplies, send me a PM.

Wow - I'm super new to quilting (about to begin my 1st!) and I'd never even thought of doing them in miniature!  Yours is lovely - I like the colours.

It looks pretty close to perfection to me!  Mini quilts require far more exactness than regular quilts, so you did an excellent job!
